Let's pretend this never happened: A mostly true memoir by Jenny Lawson

     When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a childhood wearing winter shoes made out of used bread sacks. It did, however, open up a opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame-spiral that is her life, and we are all better for it.
     Lawson's long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments - the ones we want to pretend never happened - are the very same moments that make us the people we are today.
     Let's Pretend This Never Happened is a poignantly disturbing yet darkly hysterical tome for every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud. Like laughing at a funeral, this book is both irreverent and impossible to hold back once you get started.

My Review: 5 Stars
     I had to read parts of this book to my Husband just to prove a point. And by point I mean a very, very interesting look into what has (slightly) baffled him for quite sometime...and that is, I am NOT the only person out there that thinks, acts and speaks the way I do. It's in print, HA! And for that I give a big THANKS to Jenny Lawson :)
     So having said that. I laughed, I cried, I peed...that's right. Not in my pants, that would be gross, but since I am a Fabulous multitasker I find it lazy and quite boring to sit and stare at my shower curtain while I pee. This is definitely a laugh-out-loud book that I have made a nice spot for on my read and re-read and dog-ear and quote from. Enjoy!
